Trump complained about his follower count in White House meeting with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey

Source: WaPo

President Trump on Tuesday met privately with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, a huddle at the White House between one of the site’s most prolific users and an executive who’s faced criticism for the way Twitter has handled the president’s tweets.

The meeting comes as Trump continues to attack the tech industry, threatening to regulate Facebook, Google and Twitter out of concern that they censor conservatives online — allegations that those companies fiercely deny. The president’s latest salvo came hours before meeting with Dorsey: Trump again singled out Twitter for playing “political games" and tampering with his nearly 60 million followers.

A significant portion of the meeting focused on Trump’s concerns that Twitter quietly, and deliberately, had removed some of his followers, according to a person with direct knowledge of the conversation who requested anonymity because it was private. Trump said he had heard from fellow conservatives who had lost followers as well.

But Twitter long has explained that follower figures fluctuate as the company takes action to remove fraudulent spam accounts. In the meeting, Dorsey stressed that point, noting even he had lost followers as part of Twitter’s work to enforce its policies, according to the source.

15. He still maintains...

that the crowd at his inauguration was the largest in history. Trump's mental meter is stuck on "stupid", and it's not going to change. Ever.

10. They're still harping on this shit?

They're the ones making racist and sexist memes and tweets and repeatedly breaking the rules. You can't break the rules all the time and expect to maintain your member status, it doesn't work that way.
